Dog-wolf is another common hybrid. Nasty mix.

I disagree with you on wolf dog mixes being nasty. I have known a few and they were very nice animals. But they are not for everyone. Cat rabbit cross was a joke/scam years ago. It is impossible. They called them 'cabbits'. It is really just a cat with a genetic defect, causing the leg bones to look similar to a rabbits.

A wolf hybrid is still at heart a wolf, and were HUGE in one place we lived. I carried a .45 pistol with me at all times because more than once we were challenged by one who was unrestrained. I refuse to call them nice pets.

They may be decent for a wild animal. But they are not a pet to me, nor will they ever be. I've met a coyote hybrid who was far more civil than any of the wolf hybrids I met. Granted, he won that because he was shy and wouldn't try to challenge a person first, and I never tried to challenge him, so he was likely still a coyote if you challenged him.
